BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Radiant Pig Craft Beers
New York, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
This is the biggest, juiciest IPA we’ve ever made. This unfiltered gem has a slight haze with huge tropical and citrus flavors, but is surprisingly smooth for such an aggressive amount of American and Aussie hops. As East Coast IPAs continue to evolve we added our own take, to make sure the party just don't stop.

4.24/5  rDev +8.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 16oz can into a pint glass

Appearance: Wow.. haven't seen an IPA look this light in a while. Transparent yellowish gold in color, with a small white head. Nice head retention, showing some film around the inside of the glass. Steady stream of bubbles flows up the glass as well.

Smell: Big citrusy notes engulf you as you put your nose in this one. Very clean smelling. I am getting some resinous pine aromas, some grapefruit and lemon. Really big profile here, smells heavenly.

Taste: Nice west coast hop flavor here. Big citrus notes, orange, pine, grapefruit, mango, The taste is clean and not over done at all. Finishes with a subtle amount of malt tinge, which is just enough to balance it off. Really big flavors here.

Mouthfeel: Such a light tasting beer with such a huge hop profile. Bitterness is very low and pleasing, which makes this a breeze to quaff. Mouthfeel is a tad resinous, leaving a little slickness behind on the tongue. Very nice.

Drinkability: Very impressed with this offering. The appearance along looks almost as light as a pilsner, until you smell and sip this one and realize you have a big, citrusy IPA. Love how well balanced the mouthfeel is, it's a refreshing IPA that is easy to put away. Impressive offering I would seek out again.

This is billed as an "East Coast IPA" but it certainly doesn't look like one. Completely transparent. I could read the entire Sunday paper through this beer. Do newspapers still exist?

Anyway, the substantial bone-colored head has some retention and minimal lacing. The nose reminds me of a NEIPA. Big bright sweet citrus notes with some freshly potted flowers.

The taste is dank right off the bat. Raw green earthy notes are eventually accompanied by tart and juicy grapefruit and pineapple. The lightly toasted sourdough malt character is very present in the finish. There is a bitter kick on the end that doesn't last long. Mouthfeel is low to medium for the style and ABV.

This drinks much more like a West Coast IPA in my opinion. Save the Robots is a pretty decent beer but it just baffles me why this would be identified specifically as an East Coast style. I wouldn't necessarily recommend. I'd prefer this to be a bit more flavorful with a bigger mouthfeel.

Nice flavor; not hoppy. Light and a little fruity. Good summer beer.

Very light and golden hazy color with light head from a growler. Smell and taste of ample floral hops. It has an earthy lingering taste. This is an enjoyable IPA.

-very clear, golden tap pour with low visible carbonation. Light lacing on the glass. Light lemon aroma and some bready malt in the nose. Tasty, but muted hop profile in this glass, but clean and easy drinking.

On tap at Relish in Kings Park, NY, it pours clear yellow gold color with a small off white head that faded average time but left excellent lacing coating the sides, leaving rings as it went down.

Smells of fresh citrus fruit, grapefruit, lemon zest, tangerine, light caramel, biscuit, grass, faint piney hops, light peppery spices and fresh floral hops. Really nice hoppy nose that's smells fresh hopped or like it was extra dry hopped.

Tastes like clementine, grapefruit, orange peel, light coriander and lemon zest up front, caramel, biscuit, graham cracker, brown sugar, sweet malt, fresh cut grass, cracked wheat, peppery spices and nice dry floral hops. Well balanced, fresh tasting and overall quenching and enjoyable.

Light, crisp and zesty feeling with light carbonation, it was slightly bitter with nice citrus residual flavors lingering as it fades semi-dry. Hides the ABV masterfully making it quite sessionable. Nice beer, a solid local offering.
